Does CM work with XIM3?  Might not work with mine because simply adding a USB extension to my setup the XIm does not have sufficient power, although that could be the 360.

Yes it works with the XIM3. You NEED the USB extension? I used one with mine and then figured I could get away with just plugging my XIM Edge directly into the CM.

The ONLY downside is the fact that you can't plug in the chat adapter into the controller. Something about the CronusMax not being able to support controller input AND chat. I don't know if you talk a lot then maybe its not for you and wait for the XIM Edge beta. Although you asked about the XIM3 so I doubt you have a XIM Edge.

There is a work around. Use a 2nd controller, sign in with your guest account, join your friends party and plug the chat adapter into the 2nd controller. Works fine with me although a slight and annoying hassle. Depends how important KBM support is to you! ;)

....because I wanted to.  Simple as that.   

And I find your premise inherently flawed.  I like 3 PS4 launch games so far with Resogun, Contrast, and Killzone.  (Madden still sucks, imho.)  And both consoles, after you got through the wailing and gnashing of twitter teeth about disc drives of doom and blue lines of death, you realized that social media combined with modern gaming console launches make a big deal out of very little.  Both systems have very low failure rates overall for launches of well over a million total consoles each.  Beyond that, there's more to gaming than FPS's.  XIM forum or not, folks here simply like to *game*, whether platformer, RTS, puzzle, RPG, or FPS. 

And, truthfully, waiting a year or two for a $50 price change while missing out on the best new stuff simply ain't worth it to me.

chat

Nope.. Created a third party adapter and chat works just fine.....cut apart the mic that came with the xbone, bought a second TB chat cable and spliced the two together....

And on bf4 you can use the connect to chat in game...

I got them because I didn't want to buy them and the XIM4 in quarter one. Way too many B-days in the 1st quarter and still recovering from Xmas. Although I did already sell my PS4  :P.

I didn't buy a 360 for almost a year after their launch.  Price drop, better heatsync, HDMI and surround sound support.  I'll probably wait till Destiny to get a ONE, unless Titanfall is actually a good game. 

In some cases they didnt touch the heatsink. The Xenon boards were crap, along with crap heatsinks. Then the 2nd Gen falcons came out with better heatsinks but still a @#$% board. Then then finally at year 3 or so the Falcons made it into the scene with a new chip architecture, lower power needs, and back to the @#$% heatsink but they lasted at least. If 360 was any indication, waiting a year didnt help. Saw just as many Falcons come in during my repair days.

Anyways... I have ghosts and bf4 with all my friends and play with my xim 3. Above else we are having a blast. I suppose thats our 2 cents lol.
